• Service & Social Opportunities

    At Ohio Dominican, we strive to provide opportunities for personal growth and community enrichment through our service programs.

    Service is one of the many ways we live out the call to preach the Good News of the Gospel to those we encounter. Not only is service important for our growth and development as a University, it also impacts the communities we serve, locally, nationally, and internationally. 

    Be sure to join us for one or all of our service opportunities. If you don't see something that interests you, don't hesitate to contact us and suggest new ideas.
